Practice Owner & Veterinary Surgeon

Read Dr Hayley Baker bio

Hi Everyone!  I am Hayley the Practice Owner at Vets for Pets Bar Hill and Cambridge Beehive.  I qualified as a Veterinary Surgeon in 2008 from the University of Cambridge.  I then spent a few years in Ireland working in first opinion practice, gaining valuable experience in soft tissue surgery and emergency and critical care. I moved back to Cambridge in 2012 where I started working for Vets for Pets on Barnwell Road and took over as Practice Owner of both Vets for Pets Cambridge and Cambridge Beehive.  Since then, I have gained a post-graduate qualification in endoscopy and endosurgery, of which there are only a handful of us across the country and now champion minimally invasive procedures, not only in our practice but across the entire Vets for Pets Business.  For this reason, I was awarded a grant by Vets for Pets to include a state-of-the-art training facility in our new Bar Hill Practice, to help encourage uptake of, specifically, laparoscopic neutering.

At home I look after my two daughters Evie and Ysmay with my husband Rob, who is originally from Histon.  I also spend any free time I have running and you will regularly find me running around the village during lunch time!

Before joining Vets4Pets, I previously worked as a Veterinary Oncology Nurse at a referral hospital. After nearly six years in referral, I thought it was time for a change! This is my first job in first opinion and I am loving the variety, the challenges, and chatting to clients! I really enjoy anaesthesia and I'm loving learning all about exotics from Sarah! I have a dog of my own called Omelette and a son called Andrew, both of whom keep me very busy!

I qualified as a veterinary nurse in 2023, having decided to re-train after home-schooling my youngest 3 children in the Covid-19 pandemic. I absolutely love veterinary nursing, and have a keen interest in diagnostic imaging and hospital nursing. I joined the Vets for Pets team in January 2022 as a degree student on placement, and am delighted to be working for them now that I am fully registered. I live just outside of Cambridge with my family and our dog and two cats. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my children, dog walking, and any craft involving yarn!
